When Utah residents saw 22-year-old Darrien Hunt carrying a toy sword, they called police who shot and killed him. But when 22-year-old Joseph Kelley carried an assault rifle to a JC Penney store in Utah, he walked out without a scratch on his body. They were both the same age. Both in the same state. But only one was considered “suspicious.” And you still believe America is color blind?

The guy had a blunt sword, part of a costume. Was leaving a cos-play event.
Utah is horrible.

America is horrible.

Kerry Washington instagrammed THIS photo and retweeted THIS photo while doing press for the upcoming season of her hit show, Scandal

She is wearing the Suno striped mini dress.  Buy it here:

SAKS FIFTH AVENUE - $995
FARFETCH - $995

I have a similar one from Michael Kors that’s about a forth of the price for those looking for a “bargain”.

Fabric?

I’ll check when I get home but my guess is poly blend. It has structure with a bit of stretch. Fully lined.

cute and very stylish!!!

It’s not fair for him to even be on the show. Who’s gonna beat him? Seriously?

Yeah he’s gonna win.

I can’t get enough of this.

I’m sure he gets tired of it but I pray he does The Carlton at least once though. This shit was week one though? Everyone else needs to just quit haha.

I love the look on everyone’s face. Like “Welp, I’m playing for second.”

Hold on! Did I see that egg head TAVIS Smiley in the background?

Yep. He is on this season. Along with forever losing LoLo Jones.

yeah i know…tavis smiley…ughhhh!!

I did not know Tony played for the NFL! You learn something new every day about her husband. He really is a unicorn. lol

I’m sure the sickos have this all twisted by now. I’m delighted to see her relaxed and going with it.

And you know this! They already claiming she was talking about Tony, but the guy was talking about Nnamdi. Even though she’s agreeing to everything he’s saying. I learn something new about Tony Goldwyn everyday. In addition to being all powerful and responsible for Kerry’s recent success, he also graduated from UC Berkley and played in the NFL for 11 years. Quite an impressive guy. No wonder she married him, despite bigamy being illegal in the US.

can’t wait to see what the goldfish blog is gonna say on this one. So much bullshit.

Kerry’s appointment as ambassador for the purple purse campaign is the ultimate last laugh at those dummies and their Gladiators4Change DV campaign against Scandal.  

If there were a modicum of potential that rationally thinking people would perceive that show as advocating violence against women, this campaign would NEVER have chosen Kerry.  

Their choice illuminates what bullshit this Gladiators4Change campaign and petition really is.  

Bye Felicias  

Agreed.

bye felicias indeed because have they pushed a petition for the real life violence that ray rice’s wife experienced? did they go to the nfl or their corporate sponsors with outrage???? this is how you know the silly versus the serious. real outrage versus phony trumped up outrage.

Protesters from across St Louis turned up and turned out for the first St Louis County Council Meeting since Mike Brown’s Death. (Part IV)

And now for the side show… the STL County Council/police fail at being empathetic, and tone deaf white people are tone deaf (and white). #staywoke #farfromover

wow!!! this city is still going to blow up if they don’t change and acknowledge the race problems.

Pistorius has taught abusers everywhere that they can come up with the flimsiest of lies and will be believed. Women everywhere have learned that their partners can terrorize and abuse and and even murder them and get away with it.

She must have been terrified.
